  1. Spencer's office is now charging $1200 pesos - no longer $500
  2. This person had keys to the complexes and keys to the available apartments. Asking only for information about him specifically.
  3. Looking for a recommendation for Jorge Verdin as a rental agent. He posts various properties on FB but does not seem to own them or be associated with one of the management companies. Please only specific answers regarding this person - not looking for general comments about how to rent.
  4. Wow, I am happy it worked. If you don't mind, what photo ID did you use? Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post here. I think you said you posted 2 different IDs.
  5. Please post your results and if you don't mind, which ID they accepted. I won't have my official Residence card until next week. Funny that I was to open a new account without any ID but then I have not tried to check out yet either. Very strange. Don't they want us to buy their stuff?
  6. I have had my account for years also and have been filling my shopping basket with small items for a couple of months. Now, as of yesterday, I get an email security code, sometimes I get the Captcha (sp) photos, and now they want a Mexican photo ID. I have no idea why and can't get into my account at all. Thanks for your comment. I was able to open a new account with a different email address without a photo ID but not an ideal situation as I don't actively use the second email address.
  7. I am trying to log into Mercado Libre and they are now requiring you upload a copy of your Mexican ID with photo. It would not accept my drivers license, passport, or Temporal Residencia Visa. I don't have my final card yet but don't know if that will be accepted either. Anyone have any luck buying at Mercado Libre with these new requirements? I absolutely don't shop at Amazon, so please don't suggest that.
  8. If you will read my original post - I am looking for people with personal experiences - not what the specs are for converters or specific items. As stated: I know there are a lot of specs to pay attention to I do not need assistance with that. Also, I asked about the converters sold by Sterens and on Mercado Libre, if anyone has purchased those items and found them to be of good quality or not.
  9. Original post is asking for personal experience - not what I already know about stats from research.
  10. Icscats, sorry, but the post is about kitchen countertop appliances from "overseas" (not NOB) that are made for 230V?
  11. Does anyone have any experience with step up converters for use with small kitchen appliances purchased overseas. I know Sterens sells them and there is also a variety on Mercado Libre, but i am looking for recommendations from personal experience. I know there are a lot of specs to pay attention to. I am hoping I won't want to have to replace all of my small countertop kitchen gadgets if I don't have to. Thanks in advance.
  12. Luis from Bennos opened his own shop. It is up close to Pancho's Deli LAKESIDE COMPUSHOP+REPAIR Hidalgo 77-3, Planta baja, Riberas del Pilar, 45906, Chapala, Jal. (376) 688 1354 (332) 340 7501
  13. Just a comment to beware of renting from Four Seasons - Tere Barroso, agent. Offices up by Bennos in the same strip mall as Lake Taco. She is very charming but difficult. I have been trying to get my promised deposit refund since September. She said she wired it but I never received it and Tere has refused to provide any receipt for the transaction. As it is over $14,000 pesos, it is not something I want to walk away from. Just a heads up. There are better property managers at Lakeside.
  14. Just add him to your "ignore" list and you won't see his comments - just that he posted something.
